Alpine Events Park

The $3.74million Alpine Events Park, for outdoor events, will be built at Pioneer Park, Bright. The Park will attract larger scale national and international events to the region. Thirty-five jobs will be created during the three-year design and construction period. The Park will create about 70 new jobs and $16.5 million in direct expenditure in the Alpine Shire every year.

Project Update - September 2017

Design for the new Multipurpose Facility at the Alpine Events Park, Bright

Construction of the new Alpine Events Park Multipurpose Facility located at the Bright Pioneer Park Recreational Reserve will begin before the end of September 2017. Councillors awarded the $1.82 million contract to building contractors Barton St. Developments at the monthly Council meeting held on Tuesday 5 September 2017.

The development will involve restoration of the heritage-protected grandstand, the demolition of the old pavilion, the expansion of the lower change rooms and a new upper level facility capable of hosting meetings and events.

Construction of the lower level change rooms is scheduled to be completed in time for Easter 2018 and available for use during the football season while works continue on the upper level.

Project Update - March 2017

Works to the civil construction stage of the Alpine Events Park Project will kick off in March.

North East Civil Construction (NECC) will begin work at Pioneer Park, Bright, from Tuesday, 14 March and depending on the wet season are expected to conclude by the end of June.

There will be much activity in the park over the next three months, including earth works machinery, fenced off areas and disruption to services and site access.
